Samsung Gear S sells 10,000 units in South Korea on its launch day
The Samsung Gear S features a curved 2-inch Super AMOLED display, with resolution of 360 x 480. A dual-core 1GHz Samsung Exynos processor is under the hood, with 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of native storage on board. A 300mAh battery keeps the lights on.
The Samsung Gear S is powered by Tizen, not Android Wear. While it is not necessary, the watch can be paired to a Samsung Galaxy smartphone using Bluetooth 4.0. The Gear S also includes a heart rate sensor, barometer, UV light sensor and compass. In addition to the 3G connectivity, it also features support for Wi-Fi. Last week, the watch became available in the U.S. via AT&T and Sprint. Eventually it will be part of the lineup at Verizon and T-Mobile.
